Did you hear what happened?” John asked when he saw me walking down the hallway at work.
“Hear what” I asked, my curiosity peaked.
“The regional vice president died this morning!”
“What?!” I asked, totally stunned. “What happened?”
“He was working through lunch when he had a heart attack,” John began explaining. “Everyone was gone except his secretary. You know the one.”
“Boy, do I. She’s that young, blonde babe.”
“Yeah, that’s the one. Turns out she isn’t too smart though.”
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“He kept yelling at her to ‘call 9-1-1.’ She just stood there waiting for him to give her the rest of the phone number.”
